Modern Warfare 2 Battle Pass Release Date: A Player can be seen

When is the Modern Warfare 2 battle pass release date? What is the battle pass cost in Modern Warfare 2? What do we know about the MW2 battle pass? These are all valid questions while we wait for more details from Infinity Ward.

But, while you wait for more details, including how much money you will need to fork up, you can find the latest below. These include what cosmetics you can expect to add to the best Modern Warfare 2 guns in the game, or maybe entirely new items for the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts you can put together.

Modern Warfare 2 battle pass release date

The first Modern Warfare 2 battle pass will be available on November 16, 2022, alongside the release of Season 1 for the game. The Battle Pass will go live simultaneously with the update for Season 1.

The Battle Pass’ release date will coincide with the sequel to Warzone 2’s one as well, with both passes linked, as we have seen for the past few years.

Modern Warfare 2 battle pass cost

The cost of Modern Warfare 2’s battle pass is not known yet. However, we can assume it will be the same price as Vanguard. In Vanguard the battle pass cost 1,000 COD Points or $9.99/£8.50.

Previous Call of Duty games have all stuck around this price for the battle pass, so we don’t expect that to change for Modern Warfare 2. On top of the regular battle pass, we don’t yet know if the Battle Pass Bundles will be available, which offer additional items and unlocks, as well as some tier skips. These usually cost 2,400 COD Points or $19.99/£16.49.

The battle pass for Modern Warfare 2 will have both free and premium rewards for you to earn. However, beyond that core structure, the battle pass will offer players more “choices and more agency than ever before” according to Activision.

Instead of a linear stream of items, the battle pass now forms a multi-sector map. Players unlock items using earned Battle Token Tier Skips across the map with five items in each sector for a total of 20. You can then unlock each sector and a host of rewards within it.

A guide closer to the release of the mode will go into more detail about how this works.

Within the pass, we can expect items like Double XP Tokens, Double Weapon XP Tokens, emblems, calling cards, Operators, operator skins, camos, weapons, weapon blueprints, weapon vaults, and other cosmetic items to be included. But, until Activision properly details the battle pass we won’t know for sure.

And that covers what we know about the Modern Warfare 2 battle pass release date, its cost, and details about the unlockable tiers available as well.
